Just because DS posted it it's not official .Anyway, I think it's happening but there is still 2% chance that it's all a big fat rumour.Anyway, the tracklist doesn't look very promising and if it's all club songs then I'm not down with this release.I appreciate Brit's albums for their clean and shameless pop nature; I don't need club music.Now if they have turned Womanizer into a jazz song and I Wanna Go into funk/soul then it's interesting (I know it's not happening, just saying).Anyway, if I like it A LOT I may buy it sometime.I'm a little baffled that there is no new song on there.The label still doesn't care I see.I hope it's Jive's responsibility because if RCA planned it, this is NOT a good beginning...

It could be her way of finishing her contract with JIVE. Maybe she had one more album left with them and by releasing this, it completes her contract.

Yes, but Jive is shutting down.What kind of legal obligations are there when the label is a write-off?Anyway, the industry works in mysterious ways, so I don't doubt it might be true.Now bring on the new label.

Interesting but there should have been at least one new song on it. Didn't her first remix album have a couple of new songs on it?

I hadn't thought of it like that. If so I'm happy for her. She deserves a label who are going to fully support her, Jive haven't done that for a number of years.

Britney is in the UK!
I wonder if she'll appear on any chatshows?...

She would be great on Chatty Man

Surely it was confirmed when Britney tweeted the release date of October 11th? No?

The problem for an interviewer is that they are not interviewing Britney; they're interviewing her management. I dread to think how long the list of questions they are not allowed to ask her is.

Sadly, all of her answers appear to be pre-planned. I'd like to think that she gets more free reign now, she is a fully grown woman after all.

I think that Britney needs an insightful and heartfelt sit-down with a great interviewer that is also a good person and won't try to trap her to gain ratings.People need to see some personality, because they think she's a robot!Also, Britney needs to start acting like a grown woman and be more brave and capable of fighting her own battles.She shouldn't just back down everytime a shitty label tries to tell her what to do and let them boss her around.She should know what she wants and demand what she needs to be done.Most of the legendary artists have done things that a label would never fully approve, but their guts made them more powerful and therefore massively admired and idolized.Labels always play it safe, so if Britney is not ready to be herself yet, then she shouldn't release any more songs like TTWE and do scripted interviews because she gives people the wrong impression.

Agree. I would love for her to refuse to take bullshit from her label.

Wow! I would be amazed and ecstatic if she did some UK promo, it might not help Femme Fatale sales too much but it would be great to see her over here!

If she is doing OK! TV then surely she would do other shows, some that are a little more high-profile.

I am clueless about UK TV.Do they have some sort of a stage for performances on OKTV or is it just a sit-down/small talk thing??

YES!If she doesn't perform I will be gutted.If she performs 'Criminal' I would like some live vocals (at least one verse, one chorus and some adlibs) and also when she sits down to do the interview, she could do a subtle hair flip to redeem herself

Hey folks! I'm new, and a casual Britney fan.

Which basically means I like about half of her songs.

Anyway, I've seen on Twitter that a Capital FM interview has been organised.
